Zombies have overrun the Baja Studios in Baja California, Mexico, ever since the second season of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” made use of the four-water tank facility, once known as Fox Baja Studios. The third season of the hit series is now in production at the 51-acre oceanfront studio purpose-built by Twentieth Century Fox for James Cameron’s “Titanic.”
“It’s been an amazing experience,” said Pablo Cruz who, along with his partner Arturo Sampson, has been providing production services to the dystopian series, independently of his duties as co-head of Canana Films.
“A whole team of divers live in the town of Ensenada who know every corner of the diving tank,” said Cruz. “The town is home to trained bilingual pros in makeup, wardrobe, electrical etc., and they mainly do U.S. movies,” said Cruz, who’s also handling production services for Mediaset miniseries “Ultimo 5.”

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)
From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape.
